HIV & TB Community Control Project - 4 southern provinces

Prevention and Control of HIV/AIDS in Kuando Kubango, Kunene, Huila and Namibe is a project being implemented by a consortium of organizations, led by ADPP and including 5 other Angolan organizations: PRAZEDOR, MBAKITA, ADC, ASPALSIDA and ETUNGAFANO. The goal is to reach 7,500 people with information and testing, and 5,000 HIV+ pregnant women with community-based services to combat vertical transmission. Support for people undergoing treatment, including TB awareness, is included in the overall objective. 

The project began in the final quarter of 2017, with the selection for participation of 28 health units. 21 health agents per province were also engaged, and those in Kuando Kubango, Kunene and Huila attended training sessions covering HIV prevention and control, with training scheduled to take place in Namibe in early January 2018. Activities in Kuando Kubango advanced rapidly, and the community health agents reached 732 people with HIV information, advice and testing before the end of the year. 134 of these attended HIV testing in the community. They distributed more than 3,000 condoms, and embarked on home visits, talks, and the targeting of mother and pregnant women with specific information about mother to child transmission.
